A Reason to Smile Birthday

June 30, 2012

I used the sketch from Sudsol  and the lovely stamp set Reason to Smile which was is only available to purchase or earn for free until the end of the month.   If you need more details see this post.

I used the large flower in the Reason to Smile stampset and stamped it in Tangerine Tango ink, making sure that I stamped onto scrap paper once with the background image before stamping over the top with the detail image on Whisper White card (I love two-step stamps, don’t you?).  I attached the stamped piece to Tangerine Tango card.   I punched one long edge of a strip of Always Artichoke card with the Eyelet Border Punch and wrapped it with Chocolate Chip 1/2″ Scallop Dots Ribbon and tied a knot.  I stamped the greeting from the Sincere Salutations stampset onto Whisper White card using Tangerine Tango ink.  I attached the greeting behind the Always Artichoke card and then attached it to the card front.  The whole piece was then attached to scored and folded Chocolate Chip card.

I think it is a shame that we only have this stampset available for such a short time, because it is really a lovely set to use.

Bye for now, Kris.

    This is very pretty, Kris. Simple, yet elegant.

    Your tangerine tango flowers and polka dot bow are a terrific combo!
